Last year I knit a scarf for my niece as a Christmas gift.. This year she asked me to make her some fingerless hand warmers. This a very quick and easy idea I came up with. 

Step 1: Supplies

basic knitting skills
darning needle

Step 2: Cast On

cast on 20 stitches
I used size 13 needles and 2 strands of yarn.
I chose a slightly heavier yarn and a slimmer yarn to match the original scarf I knit. I like to knit with mixed yarns.

Step 3: Knit

knit eac row
I like to just use a knit stitch 
I like the look of rows  of simple knitting.

Step 4: Knit

Knit about 30 rows
enough to wrap around the hand

Step 5: Knit

knit approx. 30 rows or 8 inches ( for a size small, give more rows for a larger hand)

Step 6: Cast Off

Cast off by knitting 2 stitches together
then return the remaining stitch to the needle and knit the next 2 stitches until all stitches are removed from needles.

Step 7: Knit

knit a second piece

Step 8: Sewing

Thread the darning needle with the thinner strand of yarn and sew fron 
m the wrist approx. 3"
make a sturdy knot.

Step 9: Sew

leave a 2" opening and continue to sew to the top edge.

Step 10: Finish

sew second mitten and the warmers are finished.
Quick and easy!
<p>uhm im a bit confused about the step 6 : then return the remaining stitch to the needle and knit the next 2 stitches. do you mean like put the stitch you just made and slip it on the other needle? maybe if you could make a video it could be easier to understand but other than that this is a great Instructable :)</p>
<p>Yes, you are passing the remaining stitch from the right needle back to the left, this is sometimes called a &quot;stretchy bind off&quot;</p>
What do you think would be about the measurements for an adult pair? I am making a pair for my mom for Christmas.
<p>Hi Charlieanderin,</p><p>The instructable is written with adult measurements.</p><p>Have fun</p>
always wanted to know haw to make these. brilliant mittens. cant wait to sew them
Great...you will have fun they are very easy! enjoy
Yay! I just finished making a pair with Bernat Roving wool in Rice Paper colour! Thank you very much for putting up this very nice Instructable! Keep up the great work! :-)
Thank you! You have inspired me to give it a try! Thank you again! <br>Cheryl
I like the way you've done these. I've been working on a pair of mitts for a while and keep re-knitting them, trying to find a texture that I like. I like the sideways garter stitch!
Thanks....it looks a bit like ribbing.....
My first project other than a scarf;) started and fitted in 1day!!!<br> &nbsp;&nbsp;
I LOVE THESE!!!!! The make winter just that much less inconvenient..... <br>I have a few pairs but could always use a few more (*hint*, *hint*). So nice when cold weather dexterity is required (making a payment, using a touch-screen, pumping gas, scratching an itch). <br>
color suggestion?
a multi-color yarn would be lovely! <br>(my winter coat is cobalt blue - I have a black pair, and an earth tones pair but I'm open to ANYTHING &hearts;)
Very cute! Those are always nice to wear when working on a laptop :)
